CLEVELAND (CBS/AP) Welcome to another installment of NFL Players (allegedly) Behaving Badly.

Chris Jennings, running back for the Cleveland Browns, was arrested early Saturday after he allegedly punched a bouncer outside a Cleveland nightclub. The flagrant contact was initiated by Jennings because he was upset that a club bouncer wouldn't let Jennings' friend inside, over a question of proper attire, according to John O'Brien, a spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department.

Jennings was released from jail.

O'Brien says the case has been turned over to the county prosecutor's office, to determine whether to file an assault charge.

Browns general manager Tom Heckert says the team is aware of the situation and that it won't comment until it has all pertinent information.

Jennings rushed for 220 yards and scored one touchdown as a rookie last season.
